About the Event

Vel Phillips Forum: What is Happening with DEI in Our Schools? HYBRID EVENT - Register to attend In Person or Virtually

What is Happening with DEI in Our Schools? For students, teachers, families, and folks who care about equity in our community. DEI efforts are under attack in our schools. Long-term systemic racism must be countered by long-term systemic anti-racism that lifts up and collaborates with marginalized people. Societies are stronger, richer and more resilient when they respect, value and learn from diverse cultures, knowledge, experiences, and ideas.
